Tylenol

USER REVIEWS

Comment from: 13-18 Female (Patient) Published: December 30

Although the effects of a drug vary from person to person, Tylenol has had very little (if any) effect on pain in my experiences, and I've heard similar comments from friends, including some of whom are health professionals. Tylenol is nothing but a mere fever reducer.

this drug works well for my backpain and it seems to ease the pain for fibromyalgia that iam told i have.This might intrest you.I take one TYLENOL and one PROPOXY-N/APAP.The amazing thing is it does not matter when i take these 2 pills.If in early morning or midday the pain is 80% gone until the next day.I have had pain from broken bones so i would take 2TYLENOL 3s for pain every 3to4 hrs.But with the other 2 pills i need to take them once aday.I have asked several DRs why this is and all of them say they do not know why.If you could explain why tis combonation works i would sure like to hear it It makes no sense to me but all i know it works for me. THANKS

I was told to use Tylenol for pain for the last 10 days preceding a surgery. I did only because it was the only thing I could take. It had little effect on the pain and I would have probably been just as well off without taking it.

this does nothing for my pain weather it be toothache, backache, headache. I have to take it in such large doses for even a slight effect that I am afraid of overdose. 4000 mg a day is max a day for a person. I can do that easy. scared I could kill my self with overdose is that true?

Tylenol does absolutely nothing for me. I am not sure why. I have never gotten any effect from it. IBuprofen works better but not a whole lot of relief from that either. I have tried with head aches, muscle pain, and back pain.

Lower back back pain .Will tylenol effect the liver ?

Comment from: stxdave, 65-74 Female on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: September 25

I may as well drink a glass of water as use this for pain relief. Is it a placebo ?

Comment from: rblakeley, 55-64 Female on Treatment for 5-10 years (Patient) Published: September 18

No quite so good on pain caused by inflamation as some, but you can take it more often.

This doesn't even work as a placebo, and as a nurse, I should know. What a waste of time, money and possible liver damage!

Comment from: (Patient) Published: April 13

I'm 21 and i had an ovarian cyst that ruptured a couple months ago. I took tylenol it helped keep my fever down and it helped with my hip pain. It was hard for me to eat a lot and i was able to take it without having to eat something with it. I was given tylenol in the hospital as well. I don't know what i would have done without it.

Clear winner in my family for fever reduction and no stomach upset without a doubt.

Comment from: 25-34 on Treatment for 2-5 years (Patient) Published: September 18

Tylenol got me through pregnancy...when I couldn't take anything else for my frequent headaches. I did yoga and massage which worked some of the time but my ob said it was fine to also take Tylenol. Kept using as needed during breastfeeding and even now I find that it still works if I catch my headache early enough. My primary doc is happy that I've stopped taking nsaids for every little headache since it was killing my stomach.

This Tylenol for Arthritis was being used with Ferromax at the same time, but had to be discontinued due to severe diarrhea. No one ( and I asked 3 doctors, and 5 pharmacists if they had heard of this) I had to decide whether to be in pain or keep my blood count up.
